Ambition of a Flower.


Flower tells to gardener:
'I need not be a flower in vase or jewel in crown,
Nor I want to be in bouquet presented to lover.
I need not be in hands of celebrities and stars those shine.
Throw me on street where bold dedicated men
march to die for saving life, kind men busy in uplifting humanity! '

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
